Hemp protein is an excellent source of natural organic protein.
Hemp Protein by Hill Pharma delivers a complete spectrum of natural organic proteins, all essential amino acids. Hemp is free of oligosaccharides, the component that can cause gas and upset stomach.
Hemp Is Packed With Protein
The proteins found in hemp protein are very similar to the natural proteins found in the human body. Why is this important? Because hemp provides the correct amino acids in the right quantities and proportions to help our bodies make the proteins it needs. Hemp protein consists of globulins and albumin. These are two of the three most common types of proteins found in the human body. Hemp protein has more of globulins and albumin than any other plant-based protein source.
Hemp is also a quality source of the amino acids arginine and histidine, required for growth, and it is a good source of branch chained amino acids, needed for repair and growth of lean body tissue.
Essential Healthy Fatty Acids (Omega 3 And Omega 6)
Hemp protein provides the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 in a healthy proportion of 3:1 . Hemp is also one of the few organic sources of Gamma Linolenic Acid which is another important source of Omega 6. All these Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) are abundant in Hemp Protein and a great source of energy. Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) found in hemp may reduce food cravings, inflammation and improve circulation.
Dietary Fibre In Hemp Protein
Hemp is also an excellent source of dietary fibre. Each 30g serving of hemp protein delivers 8g of fibre, which equivalent to almost one/third of the total daily fibre requirement of 30g. Hemp protein also provides vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and chlorophyll. In a few words: Hemp Protein is a nutritional powerhouse.
Hemp protein is certified Non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, kosher, halal, sugar free, no saturated fatty acids, no trans-fat, no cholesterol and no THC. Hemp protein is usually very safe for those unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, lactose, and sugar. In fact, there are no known allergies to hemp foods.
Hemp protein is extracted from the seeds of the plant Cannabis sativa. Hemp protein is certified free of THC so you can’t get “high” by mixing hemp protein with favorite shake flavor. Health Benefits of Hemp Protein Hemp protein, made from the hemp seed and is used to enhance total protein intake for vegans and non-vegans alike.
Hemp can be considered a superior protein source due to its above-average digestibility, which also makes it ideal for athletes. Additional benefits of hemp protein include potential immune enhancing and anti-fatigue properties, as well as kidney-protective effects. Hemp protein is a high quality source of protein due to its high rate of digestibility.
The better a protein is digested, the more efficiently it can be used by the body. The digestibility of any given protein is related to the concentrations of its amino acids. A study published in 2010 in the “Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry tested the hemp protein “digestibility corrected amino acid score” (PDAAS) to measure the bioavailability of hemp protein. The results showed that hemp proteins have PDAAS values equal or greater than grains, nuts and legumes.
Hemp is a remarkably diverse crop that can be grown for both food and nonfood purposes. Hemp seed, which is used to manufacture hemp protein, is composed of approximately 45 percent oil, 35 percent protein and 10 percent carbohydrates. The hemp seed possesses many nutritional benefits, according to Agriculture and Agri-food Canada.
In addition to its health benefits, hemp is very environmentally friendly, as it can be grown without the use of fungicides, herbicides and pesticides and it efficiently absorbs carbon dioxide. Humans have been cultivating the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa, for thousands of years, mainly for its strength as a fiber and for medicinal uses. There is extensive archeological evidence that Hemp plants were cultivated as early as 10,000 B.C. Hemp’s many uses include food products, textiles, building materials, bioplastics, fuel and more.
